Re-energise Your Work Culture

If you’re thinking about how to re-energise your work culture and increase productivity amongst the team, here is something that you’ve probably not considered. Before throwing yourself into the pizza ordering or fancy biscuits and chocolates, let’s look at the business HouseRules and see how applicable they are in the present work environment.

Is your team operating at full capacity?

An unmotivated team is a productivity killer – between wasted time, constantly having to micro-manage and misaligned incentives, vital energy gets depleted. You soon realise that the current rules neither serve nor are fully implemented. 
Experience has proven lacklustre energy typically points to misalignment between policies and realities on the ground. When rules designed to safeguard the organisation end up stifling talent, motivation deteriorates.
Yet an inspired work culture is within reach. The key is balancing clarity of expectations with autonomy for teams to problem-solve. Employees crave understanding where their skills can drive impact while also exercising creativity.
Whereas, sticking to outdated guidelines can limit options and give rise to conflicting responsibilities. Individuals start to base their actions on personal belief, making “executive decisions and the whole set-up becomes obscure. Over time, workers feel constrained rather than empowered to put their stamp on quality outcomes. Instead of taking the lead with confidence, they sit back and wait for direction.

Can guidance provide a balance between accountability and autonomy?

Individuals with a passion to succeed, crave clarity on expectations. They want to know what is needed to achieve the desired results. The HouseRules of your business are the guides to set the limits to what an individual is permitted to do in your business.
Outdated policies however confuse responsibilities or are restrictive when that is no longer the intention.  So once a person gets to understand the basics they have no remit to show what they have learnt or “to put their stamp on it”.

Rather than let frustration fester, collaborate on targeted fixes:

  • A Dust Off audit for the policy that you suspect may no longer fit today’s working environment.
  • Spotlight priority areas needing refreshed rules to nourish the internal community
  • Co-create updated HouseRules that interweave individual growth with organisational success.
